Bay Area beaches get top marks for water quality in report for spring and summer

Marin Independent Journal

Marin county beaches have some of cleanest water in the state during spring and summer, according to an annual Beach Report Card released Thursday. "In the summer the water quality is generally very good," said Deb Self, executive director of San Francisco BayKeeper, a bay pollution watchdog group. "But the bay tends to have bacterial problems after heavy rains, and that is definitely true in Marin."
